WKC designed this saber specifically for the customers of Marlow White. We do not recommend its use in formation with others wearing the Army Saber. Rather this saber is intended for special occasions such as military weddings, ceremonies, and retirements. The Army Premium Saber can be impressively displayed in your home or office on our locally handcrafted Sword Plaque.

Product QuestionsIs there a reason why the premium M1902 only comes in lengths of 30 and 32? I'm of shorter stature and a 28" blade is more my size.Question by: Kris Atabaki on Jun 11, 2017 10:54:00 AMThis historical saber is primarily a gift piece intended for display. The 30” and 32” blade sizes look the best on wall mounts. Should someone want to wear the saber for a special occasion and the blade length does not work, we can special order 28” and 34” sabers. The special order process to create the individual saber can take 5-6 months. Please contact our customer service team if interested in the special order process.Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on Jun 13, 2017 2:37:00 PMI see that you all are saying this saber is for special occasions, but is it authorized? Specifically is it authorized for a Commander of Troops in an official ceremony like a Change of Command?Question by: Jason on Jun 14, 2017 7:19:00 AMThe 1902 saber is the more traditional variant and is the same one used by The Old Guard in an official capacity. This premium design is intended for special or commemorative events where it is the only saber present, such as a retirement, or a time where it can be more distinctive, such as a wedding. It may not be the idea option in an formal function where other sabers are being worn or people are performing manual of arms, such as a change of command.Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on Jun 20, 2017 6:01:00 PMHow/ long is the cord? Is the knot the same size as the Navy sword knot? Is this the only sword knot authorized for an Army Sabre/sword?Question by: Robert DeuPree on Jul 11, 2017 10:50:00 PMThe cording for the Army saber knot is about 14” long. The knot itself is 3” long. Whereas the cording on the USN Gold Knot is 12” long, and the knot, 3 ½ “.
These knots are made from different materials as well.
The Army Saber knots is the only authorized knot for the Army Saber. You may choose between a black leather or leatherette knot -- or the brown leather knot.
Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on Jul 13, 2017 11:43:00 AMWhy are there different lengths of NCO sabers? I am ordering one for a retiring NCO, how do I know the length to purchase?Question by: Stan Warrick on Mar 17, 2017 6:18:00 PMThe sizes are based off arm length. If you order too short, on a tall person the blade looks like a butter knife. If you order too long, the blade is likely to pop your cap off. It is ideal to be measured in person, as the blade lengths can vary due to the arm length of the individual. However, if you are unable to make it into the shop to be sized for a sword, then it is best to size based off height. Below is a list we use for "general sizing".
5'6"-5'7"= 28", 5'8"-5'9"= 29", 5'10"-5'11" = 30", 6'-6'1"= 31", 6'2"-6'3"=32", 6'4"-6'5"= 33", 6'6" & over= 34"Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on Mar 21, 2017 6:37:00 PMCan the U.S. Army Officer Ceremonial Belt (MI) be worn with the Blue ASU with award ribbons or are medals worn with ceremonial belt?Question by: Scott McDeed on Jan 9, 2017 2:29:00 PMSir, all awards; ribbons, miniatures, and the full-size medals are authorized to wear with the ceremonial belt. The Old Guard typically wears the full-size medals. Wearing full-size medals on your ASU is as formal as you can get when wearing the service uniform.
We suggest ribbons be worn with the ceremonial belt if you are in a group formation. As both the miniature and the full-size medals are costly.Answer by: Hannah Aaron (Admin) on Jan 16, 2017 3:43:00 PM
